was effectively a referendum on obamacare. and yet this president and nancy pelosi and harry reid rammed it through. >> the question -- if you were elected, do you want these benefits that hundreds of thousands of texans now have -- to do what been taken away? >> that is not exactly right. i support as a dividend health care reform. >> the lot of the land is in the books. do you want to have it taken away? >> you cannot talk about half without the other half. the other half -- i think health care reform should follow if you principals. number one, it should expand competition in the marketplace. number two, it should empower patients and disempower government bureaucrats. let me give you three specific reforms -- one, allow people to purchase health insurance across state lines. that would create a true 50- state national marketplace for health insurance. for example, talking about children under 26 being on the apparent policy. if we get a true national marketplace for of insurance, those parents who wanted to purchase that coverage to purchase set. we would not need the government mand
for mitt romney. does he think he has to sit down with harry reid? i think the same for president obama. i think republicans are underestimating how strong obama will be if he is reelected. hold allhink he could the republicans against an obama version of a budget deal. i think that have more leverage over members are around campaign finance issues and other things. i think obama -- even if the democrats don't control all of congress, he would have some leverage to go around leadership. people say bipartisanship, but there are two forms of bipartisanship. one is the leadership negotiant and the other is -- the premise of both of those is, there has to be personal relationships to develop before that can occur. the ambassador pointed out that governor romney will have those talents. i think president obama knows he has them, he will just have to now demonstrate the more. >> so the reality is this, we are a few short weeks away from the real work starting. be a moment ofl real clarity after the election. we will all wake up the next morning and some will be happy and some will be sad. then t
's visit to nevada prior to that, harry reid academy the presidential nominee on his religion. this is what reid said. he coming to a state where there is a lot of members of the church. they understand that he is not the face of mormonism. my first thought would be, some do you think you are the face of mormonism? i'm sure many people in the church hope not. without being disrespectful, it's not the intent of mitt romney to bring his own faith into this presidential election other than to affirm it's very important to him. i think he evidences that by what he does. when he released tax information 30% of his income away, biggest part to his church, i admire people that back up their beliefs with what they actually do. his particular faith is not the same as mine but i want people who practice what they preach. i would love to see people in office and frankly people who wanted credibility with me to demonstrate that what they stand for on sunday is also what they stand for the rest of the week. one way we find that out is how they invest even their resources. now, if you are going to bring
think he is to sit down with harry reid or does he think he has to go sit down with joe manchin and mark warner and eight other, and i think the same for president obama. i think, i think republicans are underestimate how strong obama will be if he is reelected. and i don't believe boehner if he is a 15 vote margin and as i don't think he can hold all the republicans against an obama version, for example, but they're still in of moderate republicans. the leadership is stronger than it used to be. i think they have more leverage over mbs, partly because of campaign finance issues and other things. but having said that, i think obama going to some lamar alexander's of the world, there are some the covens in the house, even if the democrats don't control both houses of congress he would have some leverage to go around leadership is leadership -- that was the case of boehner i suspect. he will feel he is obliged to cut a deal with obama in 2013 is romney lost. people said bipartisanship there are two forms of abortion she. one is leadership negotiation, the other is -- [inaudible] spent with
pelosi and harry reid rammed it through. >> the question -- if you were elected, do you want these benefits that hundreds of thousands of texans now have -- do you want them taken away? >> that is not exactly right. i support as a dividend health -- a significant health care reform. >> the lot of the land is in the books. do you want to have it taken away? >> you cannot talk about half without the other half. the other half -- i think health care reform should follow if you principals. number one, it should expand competition in the marketplace. number two, it should empower patients and disempower government bureaucrats. let me give you three specific reforms -- number one, allow people to purchase health insurance across state lines. that would create a true 50- state national marketplace for health insurance. for example, talking about children under 26 being on the apparent policy. -- on their parent's policies. if we get a true national marketplace for of insurance, those parents who wanted to purchase that coverage to purchase set. we would not need the government manda
together and harry reid hasn't passed one. socce so, i think with the debate, that paul ryan is more prepared than the administration. >> jamie: doug, what impact does the jobs report of the last week. i've heard it interpreted 42 different ways, for democrats, how can they use it and what do they need to overcome in the latest numbers? >> at the very least, jamie, the jobs report says that the argument that mitt romney was making about the economy and president obama has to be at least some point attenuated, meaning that bottom line, with unemployment going below 8% for the first time since the start of the administration in '09, the obama administration can make the case that some of their policies have produced some results. given the debate results on tuesday night, this is a potential life saver, if not a game changer for president obama. >> jamie: i suppose it has to continue and. >> yeah. >> jamie: let me ask you, angela, what's the important number, that it's below 8 or that 23 million people are out of work? >> exactly. 23 million people are still out of work, and you have 4
, we have about 30 seconds. >> nancy pelosi and harry reid. harry hopes to stay in majority, nancy wants to be leader. she was on wolf blitzer's show yesterday. i hope they're not leaders, but you cannot govern through half truths, innuendo and half-baked charges. harry reid stood in the well of the senate and charged that mitt romney had not paid taxes for ten years. demonstrably false. and nancy pelosi said when security in libya came up, she threw an innuendo that the congress didn't give all the money they asked for. another grenade tossed in the middle. you cannot govern through half truth and innuendo. that's what harry reid and nancy pelosi seem to major on. >> there we got it. that's our panel. that's our unsolicited advice for the afternoon. thanks very much for being with us. we look forward to the debate tonight. >>> margaret, thanks very much. ahead we're going to hear from two of the top advocates for mitt romney and barack obama setting the stage for tonight's presidential debate. and mitt romney has no backer as passionate about his potential than his wife, ann. just
majority leader harry reid, the highest ranking mormon in congress attacked the republican presidential nominee on his religion. he says he's coming to the state where there's a lot of members of the lds church and they had he is not the face of mormonism. my first naught senator reid, do you think you're the face of mormonism? i'm sure many people hope not. without being disrespectful it's not been the intent of mitt romney to bring his own faith into this presidential election other than to affirm that it's very important to him. i think the evidence is not by what he says, but what he does. when he released tax information and gives nearly 30% of his income away the biggest part to his church, i have to say i salute that. i admire people who don't just claim believe in something, but back it with what they actually do and give. and his particular faith is not the same as mine, but i'm wanting people who practice what they preach. i'd love to see people in office and frankly, people who want credibility with me to demonstrate that what they want for on sunday is also what they stand f
like obama wants. >> greta: but senator harry reid won't even put a budget on the floor. >> that's right. not a democratic senator for two years has voted for an obama budget. not one. >> greta: governor, as always, nice to see you, sir. >> thank you, greta. >> greta: coming up, andrew brightbart's final film is out. it's explosive. and also governor chris christie says the presidential election will be turned upside down. what will turn it upside down? governor christie will tell you straight ahead.

that you and nancy pelosi and harry reid thought something was the best answer and drove it through. what we did in a legislature 87% democrat, we worked together, whisking aside the 10th amendment which gives states the rights for these kinds of things. is not the course for america to have a stronger more vibrant economy. >> romney delivered a conservative argument and criticism over the obama agenda that the right has been clamoring for. when wall street regulation came up, he made a more centrist approach, repeatedly pointing out his support for regulation while eliminating excess. >> i'd have regulation, but i wouldn't designate five banks as too big to fail and give them a blank check. that's one of the unintended consequences of dodd frank. it wasn't thought through properly. we need to get rid of it because it's killing regional and small banks. >> the romney-ryan ticket plansa agenda amounting to trickle down government, both romney and his running mate will be appearing here in virginia today. another campaign stop tomorrow and then florida through the weekend, precede ago big f
and the unemployment rate is far too high. senate majority leader harry reid said with unemployment dropping below 8% to the lowest level in four years, our economy is on the right track. joining me now is "newsweek" columnist zachary caribel. we have one more jobs report left and let's move aahead and not talk about the ground game regarding the numbers we've seen. let's talk about the numbers we haven't seen coming up. >> you have to agree with boehner's comment, this may be the only time to say that. it's too slow and too many are unemploy unemployed. that won't change in the next four weeks. the numbers were revised up the past four months so you can see a report with the numbers revised down. there's nothing in the past few months that suggests we get a november surprise, meaning a number that is going to come out the friday before the election that is going to be so dramatically up or down it will change the tenor of people going to the polls the tuesday after next job report. >> it's very likely where we are now is where we'll be? >> right. we were, in fact -- i don't think it really requires
, mitt romney, mitch, harry reid -- i work for the people of massachusetts. i am named the least partisan senator and united states senate. >> it is striking the youth support governor running for president, i assume. >> as i said, when it comes to dealing with the economic issues, absolutely. >> you would be a reliable ally? >> it depends on with the issue is. >> on his economic plan. you said there's no one better. >> i also would like to read the bill. because i do. a lot of people to not to read the bills. i want to vote. i am a reliable vote for the bill. that is evidenced by my voting record. >> it is striking that we look to your campaign ads, is president obama that you see touting your work. we could not find any instance with you with governor romney having made any campaign appearances with him. there is an appearance york distancing yourself from governor romney to appeal to voters, specifically here in massachusetts. being " -- being too close to him may be a problem. [applause] >> as you know, in the second- most bipartisan member. i take pride in that. i was also proud to s
a year and move the detainees to the states. but it was pelosi and harry reid who said you can't use any federal funds to move guantanamo detainees to the united states and you can't use funds to buy or rehab a facility in the united states. jamie: why acquire it? >> there is overcrowding in some federal facilities. this is a well-built relatively new facility. it's been sitting dormant. i take them at their word that they want to utilize it to ease overcrowding and to bring jobs to the area. but the scepticism that some have is that the obama administration will make an end run around federal law, democrats and republicans, and try to close gitmo on the chief. jamie: there is so much overcrowding of the state prisons that the governor is releasing some prisoners locally that should potentially be behind bars, residents of illinois may argue. why not leave that opportunity or even assist the state government in acquiring it -- and there is no mention of that at this point -- may i confirm with you and take it for themselves, the feds. >> great question. one that i hope members of the med
with the fiscal cliff and end of the year and everything like that. and i don't think that either harry reid or john boehner have any idea how it will come out. much less mitt romney or barack obama. so i'm not going to pretend other then it is going to be an all-consuming mess frankly i don't think the public is ready for, has any idea coming and no matter who wins the election, what happens between now and end of the year is going to -- i should say election and end of the year is going to be very dramatic for the country. >> let me refine this and maybe do fred first and then glen. sometimes doing some things to entitlements and domestic spending is pretty inevitable and those are things a democrat will have to deal with and thinking about sort of the political consequences of that and on the republican side there's got to be more revenue. and defense is going to take some kind of a hit. that's going to be pretty ugly medicine for republicans. you know, fred, if you were sitting down with harry reid and nancy pelosi and steny hoyer or, glen, if you were sitting down with mitch mcconnell o
. every two years we have an election. >> gretchen: republicans put together a budget and harry reid has not put together a budget and the president's budget was voted down unanimously a no. >> steve: it's a great book, check it out. it's out right now by governor arnold schwarzenegger. >> brian: last question, did president obama ask you to be energy secretary? >> we have had discussions about helping and i don't get into the details of what the discussions were. because they were discussions. but we did talk about working together on some of those issues that i feel very passionate about. environmental issues. >> steve: you would have been good because you have a lot of energy. >> thank you very much. >> gretchen: thanks. are you ready for a flashback? one of the greatest female pop duos next. >> brian: let's check in with bill hemmer. >> i'll be back, too, by the way. can we drop that line now? >> brian: yes, you can. >> good morning to awful you. was benghazi president obama's 3:00 a.m. call? john bolton, peter king on that. republicans demanding answers from hillary clinton, why the
people? here for a fair and balanced debate is former communications advisor to harry reid and republican strategist michelle seleski, thank you for being here. >> good to be here. >> alisyn: penny, start with you. how can the administration justify the misleading information they put out for the first two weeks about this benghazi attack? >> the information they put out there is based on the best intelligence they had at the time. often times in the initial assessment it's often imprecise and incomplete. and as they've learned that they've shared with the congress and american public. as it has evolved, as the intelligence director has says we will let people know, but this has been evolving thing and often times unclear as my former boss says in the fog of battle. we're learning as we're given. >> alisyn: michelle, do you agree it's the fog of war that led people leak jay carney and susan rice to say it's as the result of a ridiculous movie trailer? >> if this wasn't for political reasons it's out of sheer incompetence. and to cover up solyndra and fast and furious, misinformation for p
